Together, Flex and Java make a powerful web development platform—they blend the strengths of Java on the server with the richness of Flex on the frontend. Flex on Java is a unique book that teaches you how to work with Flex in concert with the full array of Java technologies: Spring, POJOs, JMS, and other standard tools. You also learn how to integrate Flex with server-side Java via BlazeDS remoting. Almost all the carefully annotated examples use free or open source software.
- Build rich Flex 4 clients over Java backend systems
- Detailed examples using standard Java components
- Unit testing, charting, personalization, and other real-world techniques
This book is written for Java developers—no prior Flex experience is assumed.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING
“Chapter 5 is the bomb! To paraphrase a fellow reviewer, this chapter alone is easily worth the price of the book! The simplifications presented here utilizing Spring will easily save both Java and Flex developers a ton of time in development. The how to of Java/Flex messaging implementation leaves chapter 6 not far behind.”
“A beautifully written book that is a must have for every Java Developer.”
